P5RD1-VM Missing RAM

I have 1GB DDR RAM and now, only 504Mb are showing up... I looked somethings up on Google and found that whoever has 512Mb with onboard graphics automatically loses 8MB of RAM to the adapter, thus 504+8 = 512Mb, but where have my other 512MB gone? P.S: My PC is now running on a PCI-Express VGA, it's an XFX GeForce 8600GT 512 MB.

Thanks

    I also fount out that chanhging the graphics adapter priority type from PEG/IGD to PCI/IGD or IGD makes my memory ok, but then the card does not load. The onboard adapter is loaded instead.

    Didn't work, after all it is found when graphics settings are different. I'm suspecting it's a memory conflict between the memory of the video card and the RAM

Update the BIOS to the latest version (ver.1002 i think), with asus ezFlash.The whole RAM should then appear in windows system properties.

I have a intel 845gvsr board, want to replace a Ram. What type of RAM is suitable for this board?


Your Intel D845GVSR has,

1. Two ram slots.

2.Maximum Amount of ram is 1GB for EACH ram slot.

3.Maximum TOTAL Amount is 2GB, (1GB in each ram slot)

4.Uses DDR Sdram at 400MHz, (PC3200), OR
DDR Sdram at 533MHz, (PC4200)

This is an example of DDR Sdram at 400MHz, (PC3200),

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=1354&name=PC3200-DDR-Dual-Channel-Memory&Nav=|c:1352|&Sort=0&Recs=10

(Not advertising for this website. There are many places to buy ram memory)
512MB + 512MB = 1024MB, or also stated as 1GB
1024MB = 1GB

New ram memory on dell dimension celeron trying to


You should check with the folks at Dell since whoever wrote their technical manuals for this machine can't do basic math. There are 2 memory slots and each can handle a maximum capacity of 512MB, yet they claim the maximum capacity for the machine is 2GB instead of 1GB. Using 512MB modules would probably work.

Need to add RAM


Hello,

Located here is the actual specifications of your W3052.

http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=W%20Series&model=W3052

The DDR means "double data rate", SDRAM is "synchronous dynamic random access memory" and DIMM is for "dual inline memory module". These are the way manufacturers describe the specific speed, type, and packaging of the memory. You need to get the correct combination for your computer in order for it to function properly. The PC2100 is NOT correct, at the very least it will slow your computer down, and possibly will not work at all. You should use PC2700.

If you wish to add another 512MB taking your computer to 1GB total, then you only need 1 module, a 512MB, like the one that came in the computer. Do not purchase a 1GB module expecting it to work properly with the one already there. It probably won't. If you want to max out your computer's memory taking it to 2GB, then you will need to purchase 2 each 1GB modules, and remove the existing 512MB module.

When you go to the computer store, you ask for either "one five-hundred-twelve megabyte, PC2700, DDR, SDRAM DIMM memory module" or "two one-gigabyte, PC2700, DDR, SDRAM DIMM memory modules".

The part numbers from, Kingston, one of the major add-on memory makers are shown here:

512MB = KVR333X64C25/512
1GB = KVR333X64C25/1G

Motherboard ASUS P5RD1-VM ram problem


More people should complain with Asus support. Checking Asus forums, you'll find there's an obvious problem with a PCI-E video addon + 2 used memory slots. In my case, I had 2Gb (1 + 1), mb with bios version 1104, and it worked fine; when I installed a new PCI-E card, the system was very... very sluggish. Now I have uninstalled 1 memory, I'm using only 1Gb of RAM with the PCI-E card, and it's working well.

Again: checking Asus forum, this is a reported problem, and a bios bug... Asus should release a new bios version, but they seem not to bother, as this is a relatively "old' mb...

Kingston valueram 512mb


How do you mean nothing is showing up?
The fact you can get into BIOS usually means that something is right.

This board can go upto 2GB RAM

look at the kingston configurator page for info and compare it against the memory you bought (exact part numbers are a must). With Windows VIsta Ultimate you should be using 1gb Sticks not 512.
